— Temporal Vortex

Fox, Frog, and Fillers

I’m reading Naruto manga once in a while since the only sucker is Shippuuden with all those crappy fillers and the late part of the first one  when I thought they are already done with it…

Exactly, this is a rant about fillers.

As far I know, Naruto is still a Genin. (lulz, I think Genin is basic so please don’t mistook me as a Narutard) Yet again, He already progressed further than any of the Jounins in the village. If the plot of the story goes on, I think Naruto will finally end up being a Hokage (regardless of his present rank).

Uhm so, who cares?

I guess there are still many fans of Naruto but we just can’t forget the number of all those who do not like it as well. In my opinion, Naruto is doing fine with its plot if and only if the filler wasn’t aired prior to the first Naruto series. I guess I know few terminologies and those techniques but then, I don’t give a crap about the fillers which really devastated the series. BUT, in the very first place, why do you think Studio Pierrot decided to insert fillers instead of giving the show a break? Since Naruto is a primetime show(yes it is. TH 7:30), I think they targeted middle schoolers… and gave it a shot. A show won’t continue if the ratings are low but middle schoolers are still foolish enough to fall to their trap. I think this was the start of the rage of many viewers since they were anticipating for the pursuit of Sasuke/ Gaiden 3 part.

Of course when I heard some people out there yelling “omg! Sakura can now kick some ass!” I gladly peeked by watching Naruto Shippuuden as avid as ever. And then, I find myself again foolish by trusting the production company. There goes the start of me reading the manga. When I finally saw Akatsuki in some sites, I told myself, “Good for the show…” but I’m certainly not coming back to patronize the anime.

For those who consider Naruto as a complete crap regardless of the fillers, then I guess you’re in the wrong place since I have to admit that I watched the first series since I liked it although that “like” already faded away due to the crappy senseless fillers.

    Yanno, I stopped watching Naruto once I realized that “Ohcrap, this one’s gonna take forever to finish.” (Maybe this was during the Sasuke retrieval arc – I don’t remember exactly.) Actually, I don’t really regret that decision now that Naruto REALLY has gotten too long for me to follow.

    In all truth, I don’t have much problems about fillers. In Prince of Tennis, I used to love them (If fillers = those side episodes with no relation to the plot whatsoever – just to make sure that I’m talking about the same thing) since if they didn’t have them, the show would be pretty boring with pure matches.

    For my age, I can say Naruto's fillers are pretty senseless. All the missions are crappy and doesn't even have a sense. Sometimes you'll just ask yourself if those things are really done by a ninja. I mean, there was a mission involving a curry? wth?

    In contrast, Prince of Tennis are composed of male students and therefore, it's normal to see them not only do tennis matches but to also do what typical students do. Fillers as what others may call them, it is still tolerable than seeing ninjas doing not-so-ninja-esque jobs.

    Now that you put it that way… I guess that’s really understandable (and wtf curry? O_O) and compared to other series (like Reborn!) that’s also probably the case (school boys and all).
